Miller left Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday after he struck a deal with the MLS side to terminate his two-year contract early.

The 69-time former Scotland striker was immediately linked with a return to the new Scottish League One champions, but Miller told the official Whitecaps website: "It's not been discussed yet."

McCoist has never hidden his desire to re-sign the 34-year-old, who has trained at Murray Park on several occasions during breaks from Canada.

But Miller says he will talk to any club willing to offer him terms.

Asked if England could be his eventual destination, the former Hibernian, Wolves and Cardiff player said: "I would probably doubt whether the chance to go back to the Premiership would come up again but I wouldn't rule out anything else, whether that is abroad, back home or England.

"I'm open to listening to anyone who is interested. But you can't pick and choose your destination.

"There is nothing in place as of yet. What this does is give me six or seven weeks to first have a holiday and then sit down with my agent.

"He can then earn his money and find me a new club for July 1. I wouldn't rule anything out."

Miller joined Whitecaps in June 2012 and scored 13 goals in 45 appearances.

He retired from international duty after scoring for Scotland in their 3-2 friendly defeat to England at Wembley last August.

But Miller is not ready to call time on his club career just yet.

"If you speak to any ex-player, they tell you to play as long as you can because it's the one thing you miss," he explained.

"So realistically I can see myself playing for another three years. Obviously I'm getting older but I feel as fit as I've ever done."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
